Demand Sensing

Organizations are employing real-time supply chain signals to predict demand. This arms them with a competitive edge in terms of planning function, maintaining optimal levels of inventory, meeting unexpected spikes in demand and achieving improved customer service at reduced cost. Big Data and enhanced processing power – a new generation of pattern recognition and analytical tools – enable this kind of intelligence.
